You’re asking the questions. Is your HR/payroll data giving you the right answers?

Chances are your current HR/Payroll system has the potential to collect boatloads of data, but turning that data into usable information for planning and decision-making can be a nearly impossible task – particularly when the data going in is incomplete or inaccurate because of how and where it is being collected.

How prepared are you for the next budget crisis?

How easily can you make effective adjustments to staffing and payroll?

How responsive are you to the changing needs of your communities?

As a government HR professional in education, you likely deal with a workforce made up of multiple entities with unique requirements:

  • Union workers with specific rules for overtime, scheduling, and seniority
  • Administrative vs. teaching staff
  • Seniority tracking and reporting requirements
  • Credential and training management

Add to that the need to have a clear picture of what work is being done and who is being paid what to do it… well, that’s where things can get really fuzzy.

Data goes in. Information comes out.

Why not make your data work for you…

  1. Have employees enter their own time. Data entered at the source is more complete and accurate, and frees payroll staff for more valuable work, such as analysis.
  2. Connect time to specific activities, not just positions. Identifying exactly what employee time (especially overtime) is being used for allows you to make intelligent adjustments when needed.
  3. Integrate payroll, scheduling and budgeting. Combining these keeps you on top of schedule patterns and resource requirements for better planning and greater flexibility.

According to the Government, approximately 1/3 of employers make payroll mistakes. This can lead to costly penalties, but also to huge costs in terms of lost opportunities from having the wrong or incomplete information.
